Planet Hulk Novel to be Written!

This news comes compliments of the Engine of Destruction site. I was not even aware this is happening. Apparently Marvel wants to make sure EVERYONE has a chance to experience the Planet Hulk story line prior to Thor: Ragnarok releasing in November.

51yfz02d7jl-_sx373_bo1204203200_A novel, being written by none other then Greg Pak (the original writer of the graphic novel), is scheduled to be released October 17th, 2017. Which should allow fans old and new about two weeks to read before going to see Ragnarok.

I would imagine this novel to have a few tweaks on the narrative to give something new for the old fans. But overall I’d expect it to just be the graphic novel without pictures. In any case I am very tempted to buy and read this just on the off chance he sneaks something in that may connect with the movie. I doubt it, but perhaps I’m just trying to justify paying for and re-reading a story I’ve read a hundred times before.

The book can be pre-ordered on Amazon here.

Ragnarok Reveals: Hulk Lego and Art

Each day brings us closer and closer to November 3rd.The day of Ragnarok. And slowly details and photos are leaking regarding the film. Recently images surfaced of the new Lego mini figs. In fact it seems loose figures have begun making it onto eBay with large prices from China.

rafnarok artFeel free to look online for more photos regarding Thor and whatnot. Our focus here is the Hulk. Looking at the Gladiator Hulk mini-figure I realized I missed out on another new feature of this Hulk. His tattoos/body paint. If you see the artwork leaked some months back you can kind of see the marks but they blend in with the highlights. I missed them. But with this latest figure it confirms the basic new look for the Hulk. The armor, of course, being expected given the photos from SDCC.hulkragnarok-lego

 

 

 

Each new reveal makes me even more pumped for the new movie. Given there is so much Hulk in this it actually makes me sad this movie doesn’t have the dual title of Thor & Hulk: Ragnarok! Alas, we Hulk fans will take what we can get. I just hope they do the character justice. Especially if they plan for him to open his mouth in this installment.

Get Smashed!!

Reassemble (New game teaser?)

Dropping today (1/27/17) a new trailer teasing a new Marvel Avengers game featuring Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk!The theme of the trailer was reassembly and needing heroes. For a brief moment you see a pair of broken glasses and hear the Hulk’s distant roar.

.
What’s exciting about this is the game developers involved. We are talking the talents of studios behind Final Fantasy and Deus Ex making this game. Could it be we are getting a fully fleshed out Avengers game and not just some Lego kiddy adventure?

.
If so I am so pumped to play as the Hulk! I would love another stand alone Hulk game but I’ll certainly take this in the meantime. Check out the trailer below. Hopefully we get more details soon.

‘Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell’ Movie Announced!

UntitledSan Diego Comic Con is over but it has left us with plenty to be excited about. In addition to the super sweet Gladiator armor for the Hulk (to be featured in Thor: Ragnarok) seems a new animated Hulk movie has been announced.

Due to arrive in Fall of this year, ‘Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell’ is to feature our green goliath co-starring alongside Dr. Strange. No doubt in order to drum up excitement for the new Dr. Strange movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Given the film is releasing in November I am going to predict ‘Monsters Dwell’ will release in October to coincide with the Halloween season.

The Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 

To further support my prediction, Strange and Hulk will be joined by the Howling Commandos. This name is attributed to a few military groups within the Marvel Universe. Most notably they were featured more or less in the first Captain America movie. However,the report given on this film details the words “monster team”. So I am assuming its the more ferocious team shown here.

If this wasn’t exciting enough it’s been promised this film will be more “adult-oriented”. In such the way it is being compared to DC’s soon to be released “Batman: The Killing Joke” movie. This alone is great because after having to deal with the absurdity that was the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. I am so ready for Hulk to go nuts!

With all this said I think we Hulk fans have something to look forward to. I know I’m excited and I’m ready to get SMASHED!

HULK: Ragnarok

mnwze14

Coming in November 2017 is Thor: Ragnarok. Now yes I do like Thor, but he’s not the reason I am going. I am going for Hulk. And recent news has made me even more excited. Thor’s next movie will feature ALOT of the Hulk. Or at least more then in previous films.

Mark Ruffalo is quoted as saying “I think it will be smashing. The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk hulks out. Hulkier and bigger.”

I am so stoked for this. I was admittedly let down by the amount of screen time for Hulk in the last Avengers film, specifically in the last battle. Also they removed much of the fun that Hulk had in the first film. I don’t mind a darker Hulk/Banner story but Hulk is in a sensitive time now. He needs to grow a following in the cinematic Universe. Keep him as fun as possible while sticking to the source material. The first Avenger’s movie did that.

So here I am waiting patiently for next Fall when I can once again don my Hulk fists.

Well…I’m ready to get Smashed. Are you?
